Speaking at SharePoint Saturday New York on 7/30/11

I am pleased to announce (a bit belated) that I will be presenting at the next SharePoint Saturday New York on July 30th, 2011.  I will be presenting Planning and Configuring Extranets in SharePoint 2010.

Most companies, large or small, require contact and collaboration with external entities, whether they are vendors, clients, or contractors. SharePoint gives us the ability to open up portals for collaboration with these external entities – this session will show you how to accomplish this using SharePoint 2010.

We will review what is required to make SharePoint “open” to the external world, discuss scenarios regarding security and privacy, as well as walk through configuring Forms Based Authentication, Claims Based Authentication, as well as using Business Connectivity Services in SharePoint 2010, to authenticate, and manage our external users.

Once completing this session, you should have a firm grasp on how to configure an extranet environment using SharePoint 2010, as well as what should be considered during the planning of your extranet scenarios.

SharePoint Saturday New York is one of the great SharePoint Saturday events – put on by some great people – Becky Isserman (@MossLover), Jason Gallicchio (@PrincetonSUG), Greg Hurlman (@ghurlman), with Tasha Scott (@TashasEv) coordinating volunteer efforts.
